There are few things as comforting as seeing Phil Mickelson stalking the fairways of Pebble Beach. For some reason, Mickelson and the Monterey Peninsula just make sense. The California native made his pro debut in the 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and he’s played the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am since 1995.

He’s a five-time winner at Pebble Beach, most recently in 2019, and finished third here last year at the age of 49. He’s been playing the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for so long that he’s competed against players born in every decade from the 1920s (Arnold Palmer) to the 2000s (Akshay Bhatia, who’s playing this week on a sponsor exemption).

As with any great player, it’s always interesting to look at the evolution of his equipment. In Mickelson’s case, his equipment setup has evolved since his second win at Pebble Beach in 2005, when he bested Mike Weir by four strokes.

You can learn a lot about how Mickelson’s mind works digging into his bag. These days, the top of the bag is built for long, unapologetic missile launching and the bottom is an artist’s toolbox built for variety and satisfying every creative whim.

As you will see from 2005 to now, the top of the bag stayed fairly traditional, and as time went on, hybrids, 5-woods, and utility irons found their way in. The wedge set up has always stayed quintessentially Phil, however.

Let's take a look at what he had the bag for three of his wins (2005, ’12, ’19) and what he has in play today.
